Is Centrepoint Alliance under- or over-valued?
Valuing Centrepoint Alliance stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Centrepoint Alliance's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Centrepoint Alliance's P/E ratio

That's relatively high compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Centrepoint Alliance share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 3% of net profits
Recently Centrepoint Alliance has paid out, on average, around 3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Centrepoint Alliance shareholders could enjoy a 8% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Centrepoint Alliance's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.01 per share.
While Centrepoint Alliance's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Centrepoint Alliance is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Centrepoint Alliance's shares ever split?
Centrepoint Alliance's shares were split on a 1:7 basis on 21 November 2010. So if you had owned 7 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Centrepoint Alliance shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 600% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Centrepoint Alliance shares which in turn could have impacted Centrepoint Alliance's share price.
Centrepoint Alliance share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Centrepoint Alliance's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.0784 up to $0.3374. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Centrepoint Alliance's is 1.3958. This would suggest that Centrepoint Alliance's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
